Additional Notes:

  • Aquaculture fish and plants should not be eaten raw.
  • Kitchen processes must be adjusted, such as using separate gutting and cutting knives, to avoid cross-contamination of fish flesh.
  • Good practice is to keep fish in clean water ponds (or eliminate waste feed to ponds) for several weeks at the end of their growing cycle.
